This is my boyfriend and this is his boyfriend is a panfandom and multifandom meme inspired by a quote from a Parks and Recreation episode, "Pawnee Zoo". Each entry in the meme takes the quote and maps it onto a different set of characters in a different fandom. It's popular among OT3s.

The original quote:

April: This is my boyfriend Derek, and this is Derek's boyfriend Ben.
Leslie: Oh. Wait, sorry. What's the situation?
April: What do you mean?
Leslie: How does this work?
April: Derek is gay, but he's straight for me, and he's gay for Ben, and Ben's really gay for Derek. And I hate Ben.
Derek: It's not that complicated.
Ben: No.
Leslie: Oh. Yeah. Sure.
[In confessional]
Leslie: The thing about youth culture is, I don't understand it.
